The Kitchen Table Drawings

It took me quite awhile to realize that my work has a trend of domesticity that runs through it. It’s hard to find overarching themes, so I am glad to have identified one. At the moment I don’t have any photo’s of the actual drawings I have been making at the kitchen table, but Rob documented me working on them, so that will have to do for now. More to come!

As mentioned in the previously in “Panes”, I am intuitively attracted to the safe interior spaces. I like the outdoors, but I am really really enamored when it crosses boundary of home (light through the window/view to the world outside). It is across from this window with run new records from our housemates-to-be (for now we’re living with their stuff), Skye & Eric that I have been delving into my subconscious thoughts of how things work. The drawings build, grow, follow trains of thought and color. Symbols emerge, but as soon as they seem to be clearly defined, they morph into something else—like dashed lines are stitching, lane dividers and if oriented vertically, they are stacks of plates, air vents or blinds.

It is a comfortable place to draw. No need to dress for the day–the comforts of home at your fingertips.
